On Tuesday, Killington Mountain Resort & Ski Area in Vermont gave away more than 700 bags of food to the local community for a food drive aimed towards helping everyone affected by the coronavirus.
WCAX reports that cars lined up for about two miles to get half a gallon of milk, a dozen eggs, fresh produce, pantry items, frozen food, and a roll of toilet paper.
This is the Vermont ski area’s second food drive during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The one on Tuesday was to show support for community members, Killington staffers, and local area vendors.
“It’s great to see the community and give a quick hello and know they’re OK and talking to our staff. Our staff feel real proud about the experience and giving of the groceries,” Scott Harrison of Killington Ski Resort said.
According to the ski resort, this food drive is the second of many to come.
